2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel
The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is the Most Efficient Pickup in the Swift Current and Saskatoon Area
New this year to our Saskatoon-area car dealership is the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. The 2014 Ram 1500 is currently the only light duty pickup truck to offer a diesel powertrain, giving it an edge over the competition. Thanks to a combination of performance and best-in-class fuel economy, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was a winner of the 2014 MotorTrend Truck of the Year Award.
Diesel fuel is more energy-rich than the gasoline that powers most cars. This gives a diesel engine more power than a similarly-sized gas engine along with higher fuel economy. The 3.0L turbodiesel V6 engine available for the 2014 Ram 1500 is the most efficient light duty pickup engine and one of the most powerful:
- Performance: the 3.0L V6 produces a total 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, which gives drivers plenty of towing power.
- Transmission: the Ram EcoDiesel is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s controlled with a rotary knob on the instrument panel, which frees up space for a floor storage console.
- Fuel Economy: fuel efficiency is quite high at 10.2 L/100 km city and 7.1 L/100 km highway. You’re not going to find a 2014 Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado 1500 with those kinds of numbers.
The EcoDiesel’s 420 lb-ft of torque combined with the Ram 1500’s tough body structure make for a very tough pickup truck. The bed has a payload capacity of 1930 pounds while the tow hitch can be utilized for towing up to 10,450 pounds. Electronic stability control with trailer sway control comes standard with every model to make sure you don’t lose control of your boat, horse trailer, or whatever you’re towing.
The Ram 1500 is a thoroughly modern pickup truck and comes with some of the best technology available on the market. Here are a few of the highlights:
- Active Grille Shutters: shutters located behind the grille automatically open and close to reduce drag when air intake isn’t required.
- Active-Level Four-Corner Air Suspension: the only light-duty pickup to offer this technology, the air suspension can be adjusted to five different ground clearance heights. It reduces drag to boost fuel economy and helps to maintain a comfortable ride.
- Multimedia Hub: located in the center console is a hub space for all your connected electronics. You can connect devices to the UConnect system with an auxiliary audio jack, USB port, or SD card slot.
- Touchscreen Media Interface: stay in touch with the Ram’s Uconnect touchscreen interface system. After connecting your phone and other devices they can be operated simply using the intuitive display system.
- 3G Wireless: turn your truck into a mobile WiFi hotspot. It’s perfect for the worker on the go.
One of the great things about a Ram truck is the amazing amount of options you have. You can get the pickup you want with three cab sizes, three bed sizes, and six trims. There are no restrictions on what truck you can add the diesel engine too, so you can get the exact pickup truck you want.
The interior design is certainly one of the best in its class. Though the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel may be a great work truck, it’s also quite comfortable with less of those hard plastics and more soft-touch materials. If you like luxury, you can make the interior even nicer with wood grain trim and leather seats. There are also numerous storage spaces inside the cabin too so you don’t just have to rely on the bed for cargo.
Besides being tough and trendy, the 2014 Ram 1500 comes with a number of safety features. In addition to the already mentioned stability control with trail sway technology, other features include antilock disc brakes, hill start assist, full-length side curtain and front seat side airbags. You can also add on a trailer brake controller, parking sensors, and a rearview camera. All Ram trucks equipped with Uconnect Access feature an emergency system that can be used to call for assistance.
